Real Madrid have suffered their first defeat in the UEFA Champions League since the last one against the winners, Chelsea, in the Semi-Finals of the 2020/2021 campaign. FC Sheriff Tiraspol are coming into the tournament for the very first time.
Carlo Ancelotti made some great changes during the match, but they were not above these mistakes:

This is not the coach's fault, but Vinicius Junior was wasteful in the game against the Moldovan club. The 20-year-old Brazilian attacker had the clearest of chances to beat the Greece goalkeeper. There were many occasions that Vinicius Junior would have scored if he had shot the ball in one touch.
- The substitution left Real Madrid exposed to a counter.
The Italian manager is known for his attacking prowess and he made the substitution to get the whole team committed to attacking, leaving spaces behind for the FC Sheriff Tiraspol attackers to exploit.

- Isco Alarcon should have been substituted in
Since Carlo Ancelotti removed Eden Hazard from the game, Isco Alarcon should have been brought into the game. The dribbling ability of the Spanish playmaker was needed in the game.
Real Madrid faced a low-block team and the team needed someone who could carry the ball and run against the defense to create chances for the strikers, which Isco Alarcon would have done so well.
